Fictional TV anime "KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-CHAN" re-imagines the main characters as elementary school students
It's no surprise that KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN ("Skilled Teaser Takagi-san"), a manga and TV anime about a middle school girl who loves to play tricks on the boy that sits next to her in class, would celebrate April Fools' Day with a prank of its own, in this case the joking announcement of a new TV anime that looks back to the main character's days as an elementary school student.
Announced as KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-CHAN, the gag was published to the official KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN TV anime Twitter feed along with a key visual proclaiming that "The masterful teasing begins from here". The official home page for the anime is also renewed with the new artwork for a limited time only.
The original KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN manga began life as a web comic published on the Pixiv Comic website, and the series is now published in Shogakukan's Monthly Shōnen Sunday magazine. The KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN TV anime is directed by Hiroaki Akagi and features animation by Shin-Ei Animation. Crunchyroll describes KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN as follows:
"I swear I'm going to tease and embarrass Takagi-san today!" Nishikata, a middle-schooler, keeps getting teased by the girl who sits next to him in class, Takagi-san. He tries every day to get back at her, but will he ever succeed? Takagi-san and Nishikata's youthful teasing battle starts now!
